I LOOOOOOOOOOVE HOLIDAY DECOR!
I LOOOOOOOOOOVE DECOARTING!
I DON’T LOOOOOOOOVE PAYING FOR AND STORING IT ALL!
All those containers!
Did you know that the average American has 15.5 containers of decorations?
Did you also know that 83% of statistics are made up? hahahaha
If you are looking for simplicity with your decorations, here are some tips:

One of the easiest ways to add a festive touch is a beautiful sprig of nature. Natural or fake can work here. Place them all over your home.
Cheap and cheerful! You can buy ribbon, especially after Christmas, for a reasonable price. Reuse it year after year. If you don’t want to use it for the same thing next year, use it on presents or in a different way.
Fold it over a chair like a throw, hang some out of a drawer, use it as a table runner. The possibilities are endless…well maybe there is an end, but you get the point.
4) Pillow Slipcases/Covers
This is revolutionary for me. I got a pillow cover from H&M and LOVE IT! Plus, I can just take of the cover and back to the regular pillow. No storage issues.
You know what? There are people that get paid to design the stuff. It’s GORGEOUS! You can wrap up random things or just use the rolls of paper in a basket. It’s pretty and accessible for your wrapping sessions.
6) Buy with multiple seasons in mind.
Can you use this item for fall and Christmas?
Do you remember the Rosehips from our Thanksgiving Tablescape? Also, perfect for Christmas!
Get those presents wrapped early and use them for décor.
Nothing really makes a home like the holidays like scents. Get some cinnamon, orange slices, and cloves on the stove (link is our post on how to do that). You can also so candles as well, like this Christmas candle sampler.
Grab a bowl and add some of your extra bulbs for some easy décor with what you already have. You can also add small ones to mason jars. Or you can add them to a cake stand. Simply add the ornaments to the top of the cake stand and place the bottom on it and invert. Ta-Da! Plus, thrift stores carry ornaments on the cheap all the time (some are even VINTAGE).
10) Make some decorations yourself.
Everyone has Christmases that they don’t have hardly any money. Yep! So when we have had ours, we made our own….and still have some of it. Paper plate snowmen, ornaments, paper stockings with leftover red paper (it was printed on the other side), popcorn garland (or did we eat it all?), ORNAMENTS, etc. None of this takes much space, or costs anything, but it sure does make you feel in the holiday spirit.
Chalkboards are in….hopefully always will be. The bonus of it, besides being fabulous, is that you can change it with your the season.
